Benefits like ease-of-use, excellent cut quality, and long consumable life work to keep productivity high and operating costs low.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
Hypertherm, the world leader in plasma cutting technology, today announced that its new Powermax45 is receiving a positive reception from HVAC professionals who tried out the unit at the recent AHR Exposition in Chicago.
The versatility of the Powermax45 offers several benefits to heating, ventilation and air conditioning professionals. It is portable and powerful, delivers reliable performance no matter where you are and effortlessly moves from hand held to table based applications.
The system weighs 37 pounds and is among the smallest systems in its class. However, it can quickly and easily cut 1/2 inch thick metal and sever metal more than an inch thick. Fast cutting speed results in a smaller heat affected zone and less warping than is common with oxyfuel cutting.
A patented Boost Conditioner™ circuit and high power efficiency help the system work consistently even on low-line conditions or when hooked up to a generator. This means moving from job to job in the HVAC industry isn't a problem for the Powermax45. The system's versatility is further evidenced by its ability to quickly and cleanly cut most any kind of metal, including metal grates.
The Powermax45 also comes with a built in CNC interface and 50:1 voltage divider and can be used with a roller ball or torch height control. Simple controls allow any operator to become quickly skilled with the unit, and cutting with the Powermax45 requires no pre-heating of the work piece and no regulating flammable gases. A 45-amp output current and 50 percent duty cycle mean the plasma cutting system is designed for true industrial usage.
"The single-gas air or nitrogen plasma cutting system is proving extremely popular among people who cut or gouge metal--HVAC professionals included--because it delivers the features and benefits customers want," said Reese Madden, product manager for Hypertherm's Powermax systems. "Benefits like ease-of-use, excellent cut quality, and long consumable life work to keep productivity high and operating costs low."
